  • Letter: Pierce will provide support for environment

    Falmouth is very fortunate to have Democrat Teresa Pierce running in state House District 44 in November. Teresa is a dedicated supporter of the environment and knows its value as quality of life to Maine citizens and as an economic driver across the state. During her recent tenure on the Falmout...

  • Letter: Support expansion of Falmouth Memorial Library

    I am in favor of the Falmouth Memorial Library expansion. The current site is next to the business district, where the library belongs. The design is appropriate. It keeps the good and replaces the outdated. The volume level will go from the noisy children’s center through an expanded compu...

  • Short Relief: It's time for a Forest City food fight

    I just don’t watch enough TV. I have not been keeping up with the Kardashians. Am way behind on who is the next American Idol. Totally unappreciative of how many times Jack Bauer has saved civilization from devastation with only seconds to spare in his 24 hours. However, I do occa...

  • Letter: Anti-hunting conspiracy in North Yarmouth?

    Regarding North Yarmouth’s showdown over hunting, let me say hunting is a safe sport, more so than most other contact sports. According to the U.S. Sportsmen’s Association, for the period of 1990-2006, only two hunting incidents occurred in Maine where the victim was not a hunter. The...

  • Letter: Communication can open North Yarmouth land

    A story last week claimed that a “showdown looms over hunting in North Yarmouth.” In fact, the real issue is that too much private land in North Yarmouth is posted “no hunting.” As a result, hunters, sports teams, hikers and others are heading toward an unnecessary confl...

I live on Route 1, and the bus goes by my house 24 times a day, six days per week. When I see the bus, it is usually empty or nearly so, but that...

  • Letter: More tax, less revenue

    Regarding Chalmers Hardenbergh’s letter, “Let’s tax Les Otten," I caution him to consider the consequences of higher taxes in other states: People and businesses leave. From The Wall Street Journal, “Soak the Rich, Loose the Rich” (Arthur Laffer, May 18, 2009), f...

  • Letter: Gratitude from Yarmouth school nurses

    A sincere thank you from the Yarmouth school nurses to the many volunteers who helped us make our H1N1 and seasonal flu vaccine clinics so successful. From the nurses who gave the shots, to the crowd-control experts, right down to the cheerful and enthusiastic volunteers who checked students in a...

  • Letter: Protect Falmouth property rights

    Why do some Falmouth town councilors want more land restrictions exceeding even state requirements – at what cost to property owners and taxpayers for enforcement – while we are already burdened with high taxes? If we don't stop some runaway councilors with their own agendas, F...

  • Letter: Thanks from The Salvation Army

    I would like to express enormous gratitude to your readers for their support of The Salvation Army's 2009 Annual Christmas Kettle Campaign. This year the greater Portland community generously increased their support of the Christmas Kettle Campaign. Not only was our goal met, but it was ex...
